Alright. so i’m comparing two GPUs and see one is 322% faster than the other.
And if my thought process is correct here:
100% is double, that’s simple enough. 200% would be double of the initial DOUBLE which would be 4x? Plus another 100% …? A total of EIGHT times the speed?
In case anyone is wondering i’m comparing the 960 to my old HD 4850
I suppose it’s correct? I read elsewhere that it would be quadruple. But that doesn’t make much sense to me. It progresses in a linear-ish way. 100% means you’re doubling whatever is the current reference point. If you’re dealing with consecutive 100s then they’re basically exponents, are they not?
I guess it adds up. Kind of crazy to see that sort of comparison, but the 4850 is an 11 year old card now. And by comparison, 7 years older than the 960. So I suppose it makes sense.
